We’re doing meat only on the weekends and this was one of our very special weekend meals a couple of weeks ago.

Just like these chilli prawns with tomato butter and this rich vegetable stew with polenta it was comforting, warming and perfect for this never ending winter we’ve been suffering through. 

And I say that knowing that our measly winter is nothing compared to the polar vortex that’s been going on in the US over past couple of weeks.

I am truly the biggest wimp when it comes to cold weather.

And all I ever want to eat is big warming bowls of food like this pork ramen.

We decided to cook this pork belly in the pressure cooker because it takes just 30 minutes to get super soft and tender. We cut the skin off before cooking the meat and roasted it in the oven until it got crispy and crunchy because there’s really nothing better than pork crackling, if you have pork belly with skin then I highly recommend you doing the same.

The pork belly is cooked in a mixture of soy sauce, garlic, ginger and vegetable stock until it’s falling apart. Then the cooking liquid is used as the broth for the soup which makes the whole thing so simple and easy.

While the pork is cooking simply cook your noodles and boiled eggs, chop up your spring onion and coriander for topping then assemble the whole thing once the pork is cooked.

This is definitely not an authentic ramen but it’s a good short cut version.
